I heard a voice cry out in agony
" I'm so alone and so afraid
Can you help me see a light in this darkness?
Everyone else refused to show me the way."

I gave him my hand and brought him through
And found that he no more despaired
His fear and loneliness had also departed
For all he needed was someone who cared

Every soul is transformed by the heart
That possesses a Love that is genuine and real
A Love so powerful that its effect is everlasting
A Love that gives, A Love that bonds...
A Love That Heals

I've always believed that Constance Elizabeth was placed here on Earth for a special purpose.Throughout my 40+ years I've come to realize that My Purpose in Life is to Glorify God by serving others in every way possible. It's been a rough Journey,though;I've had my share of trials,tests,&tribulations:I was married to a very abusive husband for 22 years;my 1st born was diagnosed w/Autism at the age of 2;I struggled through my second College experience w/a mother who suffered horribly w/Diabetes.(The Lord took her Home in 2004,in my Junior year in Nursing School).I was very stressed during this time-trying to raise 3 children,work nights,&go to school to get my RN, all this while dying on the inside from a Loveless marriage.The stress effected me physically:my hair was falling out,my weight was out of control, & I had to have emergency surgery to remove a Necrotic Appendix when I was only 1 month away from Graduation.That was 6 years ago. My life has turned completely around:I became an RN in 2005,I remarried in 2009 to my true SoulMate,my hair grew back & I am getting rid of the "Stress Fat" once & for all!And I have never been happier!Yet now when I look back at all of those times that I felt pain,anguish, disappointment,& bathed my pillows with silent tears,I use these experiences as opportunities to encourage someone else who is living the same nightmare I once did. I also give God Praise that He gave me the strength to endure,& not allow any negative occurence to make me bitter, but better.I therefore embrace my Poem as MY LIFE MISSION: TO GIVE A LOVE THAT HEALS.

    Thank you for you: for who you are,
    However far away;
    And for the words you send to me,
    Always happy for what you say.
    Knowing simply that you're there,
    Yet thinking much of me,
    Opens up my happiness,
    For all the world to see.

    I am so Blessed by your presence in my life!

    Your friendship has helped me grow.
    Your encouragement has helped me
    gain confidence in myself.
    Knowing someone as caring as you has
    made me more sensitive to the needs of others.
    Your understanding has helped me to become
    more open about my feelings, and listening
    to your observations has made me
    think a lot about what really matters.
    Your friendship has made me see life
    as something to be enjoyed. . .
    especially with someone like you.
    Wishing you a Wonderful Weekend!
    Hugs, Teresa

    Obstacles don't have to stop you.
    If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up.
    Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.

    A friend is like a shade tree
    Beside a summer way.
    A friend is like the sunshine
    That makes a perfect day.
    A friend is like a flower
    That's worn close to the heart.
    A friend is like a treasure
    With which one will not part.

    You may only be someone in the world,
    but to someone else, you may be the world.
